Well pardon us for the inconsistency in posting new articles. Both of us have been pretty much caught up with exams and stuff like that. Gladly, we were able to finally work on something. Happened to find a bunch of really interesting YouTube short films by a certain Shelton Films and we really, really loved them…
Their first short , My Name is Lisa won the 2007 Best YouTube short film and is truly a very touching take on how a child takes care of her mother suffering from a memory loss disease. The girl here, played by Carlie Nettles, did an amazing job and was casted again in another short film RUNNING (About a teenage girl trying to run away from home, probably their best work)
MY NAME IS LISA
SHAKESPEARE WITH FRIES
Shelton Films is a joint venture of two brothers, Josh and Ben Shelton and after having achieved an appreciable internet fan following and good criticism, they have landed upon with a show on Television and also made some catchy advertisements. Ben Shelton is the director while the amazing background music of these short films was scored by Josh Shelton.
The films, though short, do not end there. The viewer is left to interpret and connect the dots and also the films talk of some relevant issues in a very subtle fashion. Especially the film, Shakespeare With Fries talks about commercialization of art leading to the death of the latter in a very comic and bizarre manner.
LOVE AND HAMBURGERS
Also, the short, Love and Hamburgers is a very cute film about how two neighbors get to know each other and finally go on a Friday lunch date. Do check all of them and spread the word about Shelton Films. We hope we see more and more of such amazing work from the brothers.
